The Contribution to Global Sustainable Development Made by Young People in Russia and Africa
24 October 2019
13:00—14:30

It is crucial that young people play a role in international cooperation and efforts to build an environment allowing young leaders and entrepreneurs to be fully involved in efforts to tackle global challenges. These aims also tally with the African Union’s Agenda 2063 and the United Nations’ 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. Collaboration between young people in Russia and Africa can be strengthened by exchanging best practices and working together on specific projects. Leadership and startup communities play a particularly important role in establishing partnerships, as these are the most effective mechanisms for enacting a structural shift in the socioeconomic sphere. What mechanisms exist for young leaders and entrepreneurs in Russia and African countries to contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals and the African Union’s Agenda 2063? How are young people in Russia and African countries helping to build joint international initiatives? What barriers are currently hindering the growth of collaboration between young people?
